Hello Babies! This episode is jam-packed with some pretty heady concepts! Like what you ask? How about "butt-stamping"? That do anything for you? And yes, we do talk a lot about Scatman John in this episode, so don't worry! Sierra Teller Ornelas joins us to talk about a parasite that replaces a fish's tongue and it's just as cool/gross as it sounds! She then tells us all about Indian Art Markets and museum stories! Then, we're joined by expert Tabitha "Airmattress" Beacham who teaches us the art of Glamping! One last question: What is the sound of a fish scream?

MaxFunDrive 2015: Final day! 5146!

| 0 comments

Let's keep this short and sweet. We're in the final hours of the drive, and it's your last opportunity to support your favorite podcasters, get great gifts, help us contribute meals to hungry families, and guarantee the podcasting event of the year in one fell swoop. We're shooting for the stars with this last stretch goal of 6000, but we think we can do it. Become a MaxFun member or upgrade your membership now to help us get there!

Also, don't forget we're capping off the drive with a live Jordan, Jesse, Go this evening! You'll be able to watch on our Ustream channel here, or embedded in a blog post.

Let's do this! Thank you!

MaxFunDrive 2015 Final Challenge!

| 3 comments

You did it! You helped us reach our stretch goal of 4000 new and upgrading members, which is astonishing. You can look forward to two additional bonus episodes from every show in the next year, plus the JJGo Boat Show, plus Travis's MBMBaM tattoo, and a Back to the Future commentary track from Rhea. You've nearly cleaned us out of stretch goals, but we had one stuck in our back pocket.

With a little over one day left, we want to blow this thing out of the water. You know the movie Freaky Friday with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis? We want to do that, but with podcasts. That's right -- a full-on, podcast host swap. We tested the crossover waters with MaxFunWeek, but we want to take things to the next level. Maybe the McElroys will dispense podcast justice in John Hodgman's place. Or perhaps the Pop Rocket crew will explore some questionable scientific claims. Will Jesse play D&D? We'll shuffle up the teams and have a full week of wild podcast mashups later this year. It'll be a total blast! The catch? We need 6000 new and upgrading members by tomorrow night.

We're already at 4600, and it's a stretch, but attainable! If you've been waiting for the final moment to become a member, now is the time to take the plunge. It's the best time to support your favorite podcasts, we still have an awesome lineup of gifts, and we're still pledging five meals for hungry families per each new and upgrading member over 2000, so the incentives are manifold. Do it now.

If you've already joined or upgraded, thank you! Help us spread the word AND enter to win free registration for MaxFunCon 2015 by tweeting a link to the donate page (maximumfun.org/donate) along with the #MaxFunDrive hashtag. The best tweet will be chosen by Jordan and Jesse at the live JJGo that will cap off the drive tomorrow night at 7 PM PDT.

Thank you again for your overwhelming show of support! We so appreciate it!
